Not so royal and certainly not worth the price. After a full day of travelling, I arrived at this hotel around 10pm ready to get some rest I am paying USD 250+ a night including taxes so one would expect a minimum level of service and facility to match the price.  Issue no 1: they couldn't find my booking (...

courteous staff....wonderful restaurant. stayed at the hotel for five nights days back. the Internet was intermediate initially but the IT guys helped resolved it by installing a booster near my room. the Friday live band was impressive and the customer service is great

I stayed here for four days on business. The reception was great and airport pick up really smooth. Staff were amazingly helpful and cooperative. I lobe their food and could afford three meals per day. Rooms are spacious and generally I was happy. However disappointing was the extremely poor internet connection. I could barely download documents. In addition, the swimming... More

Visited 6 years ago when almost new. Now a shabby excuse for a hotel. Needs serious makeover. Room ok. Room safe broken. Mold and black mildew in shower. Shower drain backs up over your feet while showering. Buffet breakfast adequate choice. Hot food cold. Had to ask for stuff that should be automatically on display-butter, juice. Nice pool but dirty.... More

A good welcome by the staff. I had my 6 yr old son with me. The rooms we as clean as clean. Everything was at the right place. The staff (from the cleaner to the managers) were very friendly. I had some goat soup for dinner and it was delicious. The price, $180 for a night was worth it.

Stayed here on business. Hotel is clean and relatively modern. Outside has a pool area that is nice during winter. Summer it gets too humid and hot to sit outside. The rooms are clean with aircon. Television in my room only had French channels. The wifi is terribly slow and constantly asks for the password to be re-entered on your... More

I had an amazing experience at this hotel. The van was there at the airport to pick us up. We were late and they waited patiently. The staff was humble, patient and kind and the atmosphere was great. I enjoyed the poolside music an dancing. The pool is beautiful especially at night when it lights up. The morning breakfast was... More

Upon late arrival due to flight delays, the van driver for the Royal Richester patiently waited for our descend. Only a 15 minute drive from the Kotoka Airport, the hotel is located in somewhat of a secluded part of the developed district of E. Lagon. As we entered the facility, all lit up and decorated, it was as if I... More

First impressions when arriving late at night after a long flight were lovely lit poolside, welcoming check in & an inviting bar to relax in once the cases have been dumped in the room. That's about as good as it got because behind the nice decor of the reception & bar you'll find the rooms are pretty basic but charged... More

Porters, cleaning staff, breakfast staff and door/security staff are all very pleasant and professional and the kitchenette is nice, but the $200+ price tag for a single room is absolutely not worth it. Close enough to airport that planes can disturb sleep/make it hard to fall (back) asleep. Gasoline/kerosene-type smell on and off, may be from neighborhood. Phone in room... More
